The Beauty of Love in Music. Ballet. Art. Fundraising Concert

Love encompasses all.
It engulfs our lives with beauty and purity.
It drives us to give unconditionally in their pursuit, fosters our sensibility to be moved by them, and allows us to move others in turn through them.
It is our aim to nurture our students at KAB in all facets of the arts to give them a well-rounded perception of the true beauty and love that they are capable of spreading.

National Gallery of Art, 2013r

The Kirov Academy of Ballet collaborated with the National Gallery of Art, in association with its upcoming exhibition, Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, 1909 — 1929: When Art Danced with Music. KAB students performed a faithful recreation of Vaslav Nijinsky’s choreography of L’après-midi d’un faune (The Afternoon of a Faun), which was first performed in 1912 to the music of Claude DeBussy (Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune). KAB students also performed a special adaptation of the pas de deux from Stravinsky’s the Firebird.

Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods, 2013

2013 Spring Performance Series

La Sylphide Act II

May 23-25, 2013, 7:00 pm

The George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium

This series provides a mix of old and new. La Sylphide is heralded as one of the most important ballets of all time and the first ballet ever to be danced on pointe. When a fairy attracts a young Scotsman on the eve of his wedding, he faces a difficult choice between reality and impossible love with a spirit. Balanchine’s vigorously paced and technically demanding Allegro Brillante simultaneously showcases precision and pure abandon of movement, creating a thrilling experience for audiences.
